Socializing for Seniors
Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog. Every week we post a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we talk about how social isolation can be harmful to a senior’s health and the steps that can be taken to prevent it.
Social isolation and loneliness can have harmful effects on health, both physically and mentally. Seniors are especially vulnerable to isolation, which can often contribute to the development of depression and cognitive decline. However, there are things that caregivers and loved ones can do to alleviate feelings of loneliness in seniors, which we cover in our home health hint below.
Thanks for watching!
